Beyond Today Magazine

March—April 2024

Modern science has been attempting to duplicate human consciousness through artificial intelligence. But this discounts a vital nonmaterial component of the human mind—what the Bible refers to as the spirit in man. Most who accept a spiritual aspect to human existence think in terms of an “immortal soul.” While the Bible does not teach that, it does speak of future life beyond death and reveals the actual way to live forever. Be sure to read this issue of Beyond Today to help you in finding the true way to eternal life.
